Looking for Greenhouses...

If you have a greenhouse please share it with us. I have had this greenhouse for about 10 years. My past greenhouses were plastic houses. When we built this greenhouse, we built it on a cement pad where an outdoor laundry building had been. We had water and electricity available which was a bonus. We have had great fun with our little greenhouse. We produce certain plants that do well in our climate and soil. We do make our own compost and enrich our sandy soil with it. We have been doing this for many years so our garden soil is nice. We use grass clippings, kitchen scraps (no meat products), leaves, tree debris (which we chip up in a chipper to make it smaller for better and quicker composting), chicken manure, some compost from other piles ( which helps get the bacteria activated to start the breaking up and composting of the compost materials), put it all in layers and water.

Here is are some good sites about composting with chicken manure.

Here are some pictures of our compost piles. We turn them fairly regularly with our tractor with the front end loader.

Re: Looking for Greenhouses...

Thanks. It isn't big but it works. We start everything from seeds in the greenhouse. Here are some of our garden pictures.
